NOTE TO SELF, BASED ON QUAKER TESTIMONIES OF INTEGRITY, SIMPLICITY, PEACE, EQUALITY, AND COMMUNITY:

1. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and soul, and your neighbor as yourself.
2. Do what you say, say what you think, think what is true.
3. Subtract superfluities from your life, speech, desires and thoughts.
4. Don't initiate aggression against the persons or property of others, nor support people who do, including the people who "constitute" the government.
5. Respect life and natural law.
6. All people are endowed by their Creator with equal and inalienable rights to the earth and to the fruits of their own labor, and a "Citizen's Dividend" funded by a "Single Tax" on the unimproved value of land and other natural resources would be the fairest way to protect these rights.

You have to be a Genius to understand this blog

According to the Blog Readability Test, this blog's reading level is "Genius." I've put the badge that accompanies this "honor" on the sidebar to the right, but don't think I'll leave it there long, because if anything, I think this score probably just means my sentences are too long and I don't use enough paragraph breaks. Come to think of it, that last sentence was too long. I'll try to do better and get the reading level down to the "junior high school" level. After all, that's the reading level the Geniuses over at The Volokh Conspiracy apparently write at.
